A person was shot Monday morning in the BART plaza at 16th and Mission streets in San Francisco, and police were advising everyone to avoid the area.
The shooting occurred in the northeast plaza at 11:30 am, as Mission Local reported. The victim was a man in his 20s, and reportedly he suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital.
A cashier at nearby Hwa Lei Market tells Mission Local that he heard multiple gunshots, and when he went outside to see what was happening, he saw multiple people fleeing the area.
Mission Local reports that US Bank, at the southeast corner of the intersection, was closed Monday morning "due to emergency."
It was not clear how long the shooting investigation may take. As KPIX reports, most of the bus re-routings that occurred due to the shooting had ended by noon Monday, but the 55 bus, which travels on 16th Street, was still being rereouted.
Mission Local reports that, despite the significant police activity in the opposite BART plaza, the plaza at the southwest side of the intersection "remained packed with vendors" who all seemed oblivious to the shooting that had just occurred across the way.
